Previously a Church Hall & dance studio now private luxury house, near North Hobart’s Restaurant strip. The Sunday School is spacious, high ceilings, open floor plan dining/living area, well equipped kitchen,granite bench & outdoor courtyard. Enjoy the ambience of a renovation with modern comforts yet respecting the building's 91 year-heritage. Great heating, Wifi, Foxtel, books, games, art, large deep bath, walk-in shower, lamps, dimmable lights.please read reviews.

The space
Built in 1928 as Sunday School & Kindergarten, later used as a dance studio & recently renovated, the Hall now offers private luxury studio style accommodation. The large main hall has lounge seating, dining table, and desk plus the “bedroom”area which is screened off by a long well-stocked double sided bookcase. For more casual meals dine at the granite topped island bench in the fully equipped kitchen or relax in the courtyard.

There's a Queen size bed and 2 king singles.The large living and dining area is warmed by a wonderful gas log fire, extra Dyson heat/cool/airpurifier is also on site. Interior décor is elegant, luxurious and welcoming, the timber floors are scattered with large and deep-pile hemp,wool and hide rugs. All lighting is dimmable (yes even the bathroom) for a romantic night in.

The kitchen, entry hall, bathroom and powder-room/laundry can be closed off with double doors but the main area is effectively open plan. The main bathroom has a large walk-in shower and deep freestanding bath, overhead heating and heated towel rail. Bathrobes, Hair dryer and GHD provided.

Entry is via a separate entry hall, there’s also a second toilet /powder room/ laundry with washing machine and dryer. Detergent provided.

Its a couple of minutes walk to the cosmopolitan North Hobart Restaurant strip with galleries, shops and theatre plus pubs, gourmet grocery, restaurants and cafes offering a myriad of cuisine styles. There’s breakfast cafes and a park with playground nearby, the CBD and waterfront are about 15 minutes walk or about $8 by taxi, MONA is 10-15 min drive but the ferry is more fun!. Parking is in the street & there's usually a spot at the front gate.
We don't provide or cook breakfast however you will find cereal, milk, tea, coffee etc. ARE provided.
A Cot and High Chair are available free of charge but stored unless requested on booking, so do let us know if you need them.

Guest access
In addition to your private courtyard near the entry door, there is also as smaller courtyard on the other side of the building accessed from near the Queen bed, close enough that you can stay in bed and still chat to your partner sitting outside at the table.
There's a large entertaining deck & BBQ and pizza oven at the host's home which is the adjacent property (the 1896 Church) . If you are self-isolating that area is really quite large so you will still be able to use much of it just not the entire area. The Sunday School is a stand-alone building with its own address and own entrance, your host is nearby for support, or to drop off items at your gate however the host accesses the former church from a different street. (hard to explain - the rear of the buildings face each other but widely separated and able to be gated off if needed).
Some days there is a very friendly, safe. non-jumpy, non-barking 8 year old dog at the church, she would like you however if you don't like dogs we can close the gate so you would still have The Sunday School's courtyard.

Other things to note
Comfortable, relaxed and luxury interior, ok for a family but remember the main hall is open plan (bathrooms / kitchen etc do close off). High chair and cot are available free of charge, please request cot on reservation.
There is no off-street parking but its usually easy to get a street car park right near the gate. Feltham Street is relatively empty of cars evenings and weekends. (please dont park in front of the roller door belonging to our neighbour)

Location

North Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

North Hobart is a little quieter than usual, its usually a foodies paradise but even though restaurants are closed many are still offering takeaways and delivery. The street where the Hall is located is a no-thru-road so its relatively quiet. Unfortuanately the iconic State Cinema for mainstream or arthouse movies is currently closed, some art galleries remain open.
Easy (flat for Hobart!) 15 minute stroll to city or waterfront. 10-15 minute drive to MONA, the ferry is highly recommended but at the moment MONA is closed.

Your host is located in the adjacent property (an 1896 church) so just one gate away if you need local advice or to raid the church herb garden, yet totally private if that's what you want. I work in PR & travel a lot but when home I'm a serial renovator so I hope you enjoy the ambience at the Sunday School, as I've tried to create a luxurious modern living space while preserving the soul of the building. Just one block away is North Hobart's iconic State Theatre for mainstream or art-movies and for foodies there are restaurants galore.... In addition to The Sunday School I also manage my daughter's Airbnb property Mandalay Cottage in North Hobart which is 2 streets away if you are coming to Hobart with friends.
